Beatles USB

The Washington Post reports, that "MySpace will acquire most of the assets of iMeem for a purchase price of around $1 million in cash."

Meanwhile, as the NY Times points out, "Hulu, the joint online venture between NBC, Fox and ABC that mostly offers free TV shows and movies, is about to start singing a different tune: music videos. On Wednesday the company plans to announce a somewhat limited deal with EMI, the smallest of the four major music labels, to give a 'channel' on Hulu to the crooner Norah Jones."

EMI is also in the news for another reason today, and that's because of their sucess in getting rid of rogue Beatles music sellers (or something like that)...

Two Web sites that sold songs by The Beatles for 25 cents apiece should remain shut down indefinitely, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

U.S. District Judge John F. Walter issued a preliminary injunction against BlueBeat.com and Basebeat.com at the request of music company EMI Group. The injunction prohibits the sites and their owner, Hank Risan, from streaming or selling songs by the Fab Four and other popular artists, including Lily Allen and Coldplay. [AP]

Which brings me to those cool green apple things pictured above. THOSE are "exquisitely crafted, apple-shaped USB drives loaded with the critically acclaimed re-mastered audio for The Beatles' 14 stereo titles, as well as all of the re-mastered CDs' visual elements, including 13 mini-documentary films about the studio albums, replicated original UK album art, rare photos and expanded liner notes." I want.
